What did you cut the dash with? I once learned, the hard way, to mask off the windshield when using a cut off wheel on a die grinder. Cut a hole for a radio in the dash of a '66 bug and pitted the glass:doah:

In all honesty I originally posted this in the garage and a moderator moved it here lol. It’s ok I originally was gonna do a build thread but thought I was to far into my build to start now but ill just back track and catch up I guess lol.

I’ve owned my k5 since I was eighteen I’ve been through all the stages with this rig no lift big tires to a cheap rough country to larger 35 in tires but now I’ve gotten older not sure about wiser lol but more focused on what I actually want to do with my rig !

I live close to fordyce and rubicon So I decide to build a family crawler out of it ! Started from the bottom swapping my tenbolts for a Dana 60 in the front and fourteen bolt in the rear . 5.13 gear ratio .
Then went with ords 4in lift alcan springs and 2in body lift. My wheels and tires are 17in headlock 2pc made by trail worthy fab good guy there he was super helpful!
Tires are 39in Pitt bulls .

The truck has pretty much sat this way the last few months due to my wedding and the holidays. Now with spring fast approaching I want to be ready to get down so I’ve started my NV4500 swap doubler install and cage I’ll post some pictures later today thanks for all the help and input in advance !

Jeez dude, you were holding out on us!

I didn’t mean for you to back track, but you certainly will get more traffic and input here

And looks to me like some folks are liking what they see
Yep yep!

Did you bore that input bearing on the 205 yourself or did you have to pay machine shop? My neighbor has a bridgport mill but I don’t think he has the cutter for that. I need to see what the shop wiould charge
